Reflection: Exit Tickets Persuasive Introductions - Section 4: Closing


The majority of my class today turned in an introduction that had a question for a hook. The majority of the class also listed their claim and reasons in the introduction. It is great that a majority knows how to do this, however, I feel that they are sticking with starting with a question because it has become easy for them. Going forward, I am going to require that they have a different hook for each draft in order to push their thinking. Additionally I will also ensure that my published drafts and my example shows hooks that are not questions.
